Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service launch new online home fire safety check tool
Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service have launched a new online home fire safety check tool, which is live on Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service’s website: www.cumbria.gov.uk/safetyathome
The site has been developed by the National Fire Chiefs Council, FireKills and SafeLincs and currently, Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service are 1 of 7 Fire and Rescue Service’s nationally who are using it. 30 more Fire and Rescue Services are in the process of embedding it into their referral systems.
The online home fire safety check tool is an online form which allows anyone to risk assess their own situation to see if they are at risk from fire in the home. Once the form is complete, it either offers some bespoke fire safety advice or generates a referral for Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service to carry out a follow up visit.
The benefits of this system mean that the service can focus their resources on those who are at the highest risk and still offer education and advice to members of the community who are not deemed to be a high fire risk. The system can also be used by family, friends, carers and partner organisations to assess someone else’s risk level and generate a visit from fire service staff if they need one.
